Questions Everyone Should Be Asking
What's the difference between a mortgage broker and a mortgage agent?
Quite simply, a mortgage agent or specialist works for a financial institution or brokerage firm. Either of these designations can source and place mortgages for you. A mortgage broker provides the same services but either owns, or can own a brokerage company. There are just different levels of licensing under the Mortgage Brokerages, Lenders and Administrators Act.
How do I find a mortgage broker in my city?
The best way to find a reputable mortgage broker in your city is to ask your family and friends. Usually, everybody knows somebody. If that's not an option, ask a realtor you may know or do a web search — many brokers have online profiles with testimonials, reviews, and biographies. Mortgage Teacher can help you find a broker you can trust to provide you with a variety of options based on your needs.
How much are mortgage broker fees?
The short answer is "zero!" There should be no fees to use a mortgage broker's services because mortgage brokers are paid by the lenders when a deal closes. But in some cases, when there are extremely difficult deals to put together, brokers may charge a variety of fees. In Ontario, the law requires mortgage brokers to disclose all fees up front, before a binding mortgage agreement is signed. For more information on specifc fees that may be charged please see this article.
What's the difference between a real estate agent and a mortgage broker?
A real estate agent is licensed to research, show, and negotiate the purchase of a home on your behalf. A mortgage broker is licensed to research and negotiate mortgage financing for the purchase of your home, on your behalf, with a variety of lending institutions.
Why do I need a mortgage broker?
Instead of having to meet with several financial institutions to research and negotiate the best mortgage, a mortgage broker does all of that for you. Mortgage brokers — like those here at Mortgage Teacher — also have access to all available lenders, whereas banks are often restricted to sell only their own mortgage products. You don't necessarily need to use a mortgage broker, but if you are inexperienced or shy of negotiating and would prefer more flexibility to find the best rate, a broker is definitely a good option.
